Free & Cheap Pumpkin Patches in Metro Vancouver & the Fraser Valley 2017

pumpkin patch

Autumn is officially here, which means pumpkin season is in full force.  Luckily for us, local farms open their doors to visitors for their annual pumpkin patches, every year, starting in late September/early October.  Hands down, I’d say this is the best way to get a pumpkin and has to be my favourite fall activity.  So, I did some research and found pumpkin patches around Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley that will cost less than $15 per person, with some that even offer free admission.  So get ready to bundle up, bring a camera and have some fun!  If you loved this post, you might also enjoy reading Penny Lavish’s posts on free and inexpensive corn mazes, haunted attractions, and Halloween attractions.

Please note: Service fees and taxes may apply, as well as, pumpkins and additional activities may be at an additional cost. See pumpkin patch websites for full details on schedule as schedule may change due to weather or for other circumstances.
